2. I urgently require a copy of a certificate after writing my examination, can I be issued a temporary certificate?
Accredited Examiners are not authorized to issue temporary certificates. Candidates with an urgent requirement for the issuance of a certificate may request us to Contact the Radio Operator Certificate Service Centre (ROCSC) and request that the issuance of their certificate be expedited. Provided there is a legitimate reason for this urgent request and that it is operationally feasible, the certificate will be produced expediently.
